Let it snow!

I was kinda disappointed cause I didn't get any good pics of our first snowfall besides a quick one on my phone before heading down to Andrews a couple of weeks ago. I'd had high hopes at the time that it would be there when I got back, but it wasn't. When I woke up yesterday and looked out my window every branch was laced in white! I was so excited. I had learn my lesson, I would get some picutures before going to work beacuase 1. I knew it would melt and 2. it would be dark when I got home. Sure enough, that was the reality, and now we hardly have more than an inch. 

I want to dedicate this post to Bethany Gerber who is in Tanzania. Hope this gives you a taste of home. I know your missing snow and here's some to bringthen you day! :) 

a sunset...

Over the last month, there have been some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I think its because I actually see them either when I am driving to or from work and school. I've often thought that it would be awesome if I could drive and take pictures at the same time but that would be a fail. I just love how every sunset and sunrise is different, God is truly the best artist ever. When I see the painting that he had set in the universe I think of the verse that says the heaven's declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth his handiwork.

A child's simple faith >>

This picture I took of Lindsay on her eight birthday. Our family went to Warren Dunes had a fun evening together! I can hardly believe that my littlest sister is all grown up... She is such a sunshine and brings so much joy into my life! I praise God that she is part of our family! She is one of the most unselfish people I know and its amazing how much I find myself learning from her. What Jesus said about the little child leading them is so true, and Lindsay has allowed herself to be used by God in that way. I am so thankful that she is my sister, and I pray that God will become even more real to her in this new year of life!

Melis & Me!

Have you ever had a friend who is so close that their basically family? Well I do! Melissa is that friend! Not long after she picked me up in Portland did we start saying that same thing at the same time... and that continued to happen the whole time we were together! Sometimes it can be a bit scary though, cause I think she knows me better then I know myself! hahaha :D

 It was so fun to see where she has grown up after hearing so many dynamic stories of her childhood!  Oh and did I mention Melissa is the best hostess! She knew all the fun things that I would love to do, and we DID them! (at least as many as we could....) Going to the Oregon coast was a highlight! We didn't have much time, but I sure we will do it again! (hopefully soon)

Grad weekend was simply fabulous! I am so thankful that I was able to make it! It was incredible to see all my friends! Before going up to fountainview I went to Melissa's house and on her wall she had this quote.. "To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might just be the world." You all mean mean the world to me! Thanks for being the amazing friends that you are!
